Intermediary / investment fund business
Institutional Clients encompasses the asset management, investment fund business as well as business with financial intermediaries and external asset managers in Switzerland and Liechtenstein (see the chapter «»). In 2013, the Institutional Clients Division achieved operating income of CHF 173.3 million (2012: CHF 124.1 million).
As one of the three largest providers of fund services in Liechtenstein, we deliver discerning institutional clients efficient solutions from one source. We also play an important role as a custodian bank. For instance, we support fund managers in designing and launching traditional and alternative investment funds. Private labelling is one of our strategic cornerstones. Special funds offer institutional investors a regulated and highly flexible product, customised to suit their individual investment wishes. Our LLB Fund Services AG, a fund management company, is well positioned for business in the EU and Swiss economic areas.
Our Asset Management unit is the largest independent investment team in the Liechtenstein financial center. The strategy funds developed by this team continually attain top rankings in European comparisons. The corresponding strategic asset allocation is also used in the LLB portfolio management, enabling our clients to benefit from a very good risk / return ratio. To enable the requirements of financial intermediaries in Liechtenstein and Switzerland to be met in detail, we strive to maintain close partner-like relationships and a transfer of knowledge. We provide sound knowledge and information about focus themes on our «LLB Xpert views» online platform and in doing so create a contemporary link between personal advice and the virtual world. With its emphasis on the fields of investments, law and taxation, this unique information portal supplies a comprehensive overview of current investment topics as well as regulatory and tax developments. Our guiding idea is to strengthen the cooperation with our institutional clients.
